Long and lean.
If only her momma could say the same.
It's completely unfair and deceiving to look down and see no real trace of my pregnancy belly and feel puffed up on self-esteem only to be deflated when I attempted to try on a pair of jeans, then another, then some shorts, then everything else pre-pregnancy I own. I guess my confidence wasn't the only thing that was drastically inflated.
When does the wideness go away?
I'm not sure I can work out or starve away the new location of my rib cage or hips.
PLEASE don't think I'm insane. Yes, I do realize that I had a baby three weeks ago and this is totally normal and better than expected. It's more of a physical problem than a mental one. As in, how the hell am I supposed to physically put on clothes other than Matthew's boxers and t-shirts and my too-big maternity wear?
They say Spanx can help you look 10lbs slimmer. Do you think if I wear two pairs at one time it will trick you into thinking I'm 20lbs smaller?
If you live in the Pawleys area you might just be privy to the results of that little experiment.
Say a little prayer for us, we're keeping our fingers crossed for tomorrow's appointment. We are thrilled that the doctor holds a clinic in our area once a month and just so happens to be coming to the hospital where BabyGirl was born tomorrow. This saves us a trip to Charleston. Not that we don't love any excuse to get down there, but it will be much more fun when it's under better circumstances. I'm already daydreaming about putting BabyGirl in her bassinet and strolling down King Street. This adventure also involves barber jackets and Burberry scarves so we might have to wait the heat out before it comes to fruition.

I might even stay in my pjs all weekend.
I'm hoping y'all have more exciting plans you can share with me because right now I live vicariously!

To all my male readers and interior design interested only peeps, stop reading here. This whole post is going to not only bore you but scare you as well and probably make you swear off my blog forever. And I don't want that to happen. I'm not going to hold it against you and I suggest you hop on over to the side bar POSH BABYGIRL to see some more precious pics of my fabulous child like the one above!
For the rest of you, its really not that bad. Especially if you are a mom or know a new one.
Anyone who tells you the hardest part about a newborn is the sleeplessness obviously didn't breastfeed. That is way harder. Probably the hardest thing I've ever attempted to do. And according to both the lactation consultant at the hospital and our pediatrician's office, BabyGirl and I are really good at it. Only problem? My body didn't get the memo. My milk has never really come in. No giant porn-star boobs, no soreness, no engorgement or letdown. No tingles and sadly, no milk. After several failed attempts to get BabyGirl to pass a weight check at the doctors office I sat down and became super friendly with my Medela pump. I think I frightened myself by that first visual. I'm producing about an ounce on one side and half and ounce on the other at best. And this is with my mother keeping me rested, fed and my child calm. No biggie, I pump and we supplement with formula. Not the plan. But who cares, you know what BabyGirl thinks of those anyway.
So my mother left last Saturday and what happens? BabyGirl stays up all night screaming and spitting up on Daddy, it's projectile I'm told, while this PoshMama stays up all night with the feverish woes of mastitis. If you don't know what that is, you're lucky. It feels like the flu. If you do, I am so sorry for each and every one of you. As if taking care of a newborn isn't hard enough, I get this. Apparently this causes me to produce even less and for it taste funky. My child wants nothing to do with it.
Apparently she has an advanced palate.
You should have seen the look on my face as I poured two hard earned ounces down the drain.
Thank the the lord, seriously, I mean no disrespect, for antibiotics.
I feel a bit more human now.
I even convinced Matthew to take his us all to Barnes & Noble.
Needless to say she projectiled the moment we hit the double doors.
Uggh, tomorrow I'm thinking we stay home to nap.

Thanks so much for making it stylish and perhaps even trendy to be a disheveled caffeine-addicted mess who hides behind oversized sunglasses in ratty clothes in public.
You've made my day.

I love that it's so sleek and modern yet still liveable and the cool tones don't make it cold or sterile. I'm loving all the acryllic furniture as well to keep everything feeling light and airy. Such great inspiration!

Would you like a pair of pink HUNTER rain boots to match mommy's?
I thought so.
You work on convincing Daddy.
Tell him you need them for pond fishing at the cabin. It worked for me.
He's going to kill me when he finds out I told you that I not only bought myself the black ones because I knew they were more practical but also the pink ones because some days you just need pink. Especially rainy days.
Love & Kisses!
Do y'all have a favorite rain boot or rain coat?
What about a cute umbrella or other accessory that brightens your rainy days?

Meet Rosie Campbell, she designs these badass belt buckles. One of these days I'm going to find my waist again and fit into my jeans without the help of the bella band and might actually be able to wear such cute belt jewelry.
